About the Cross Road Open Space
The old “Picnic Area” contains upland woodlands with several vernal pools. The rest of this 63 acre parcel is located west of Bridge Street and Chuck Drive, east of Colburn Avenue, Hildreth Street, and Stonebridge Drive, and abuts the town Department of Public Works complex to the south. Features include a large beaver pond with wetlands along Peppermint Brook and mixed deciduous and coniferous woodlands frequented by deer and turkey. Coyote and fishers have also been seen. The marsh can be seen from Chuck Drive. Parking for the picnic area is on Cross Road near the conservation sign.
